Does anyone here speak Dutch? We are working on foreign language translations of Alien Hominid, and could use a Dutch translator. Please post in this thread if you can lend a hand!

Well i use this as my translator online. I am not sure if it is accurate though.

There is also freetranslation.com, that translates.

Does this help?

Those online translators are useless, they mix the syntax up

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 14:16:45

I can help, cause im Dutch

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 14:33:38


I could help, I speak Dutch.
But why do you have to translate it? It's not like any other PAL games get translated to Dutch.

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 14:49:47


I sent you an email, Tom. :D

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 14:52:31


My mother worked in translation for 20 years. Says it very difficult.

So whatever you do, HIRE someone :o
Don't ask an NG fan to do it because you'll get a shit-ass translation most likely.

What the hell? I don't want to be the tough guy, but I'm a very good english speaker. And I come from Holland. So what's the problem?

Someone set us up the bomb.

Transolation:

Iemand heeft de bom aangezet.

I've seen 3 of 4 dutch people replied to this news, Maybe that's a good team. Because translating isn't that easy as some think. You should manage to get the english word to dutch but it should have (plus minus) the same amount of letters, Like:
You can translate "PLAY" into:
"Beginnen"
"Starten"
"Begin"
"Start"
and so on...I would pick "Begin" for this one because "Start" also is an english word...oh wait, Begin is too! :P whatever...

You changed the meaning. It's not meant that way.

If I'd translate that back, i'd say:"Someone turned the bomb on."

''afspelen'' is also an option

Any dutch dude would understand "play"anyhow. But there are more options than those. But "afspelen" is the most accurate.

"Beginnen"=to begin
"Starten"= to start
"Begin"=begin
"Start"=start.
äfspelen"=play

You are 100% right, I always translate back dutch to english if I translated something to check if it's the same...I would translate "Someone set us up the bomb" as "Iemand zette ons de bom op" or something like that

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 15:17:48


I ment "play" as Play a game, not Play a cd...

Response to AH in Dutch... Translator? 2004-11-05 15:19:56
